The Darien Foundation has awarded $18,500 to the Darien Community Association (DCA) to fund improvements in their four-acre bird sanctuary. This is the second grant the Darien Foundation has given to the DCA and it will be used to attract more birds with a pondless cascading waterfall and new trees to provide more cover and food.
“The Darien Foundation provided significant funding to the DCA in 2013 for deer fencing, since protecting native plantings was essential for the success of the sanctuary,” said Darien Foundation Executive Director Sarah Woodberry. “It has become a beautiful town asset and great example of what a nonprofit organization and its dedicated volunteers can contribute to the community. We are thrilled to continue our support.”
